First tenants move into Pears Court at Sandringham

24 Jun 2021

The first tenants have moved into their apartments at Pears Court at Sandringham this week and are delighted to be in their new homes.

Throughout the pandemic, Jewish Care has worked to ensure that Pears Court at Sandringham would be able to move in to as soon as possible and are pleased that the first tenants now living there will form a foundation of the community which will grow at the Sandringham site.

Located on the Stanmore/Hertfordshire borders, Pears Court at Sandringham is our newest Retirement Living development set in the beautiful, landscaped Sandringham site set in 16 acres of beautiful land with walkways and paths to explore. 

The apartments are organised around a garden courtyard connecting to The Ronson Family Community Centre, our latest spacious and impressive community centre, offering a wide range of activities, an on-site synagogue, café and restaurant, shop and wellbeing centre.

Pears Court at Sandringham also offers a bright and spacious modern communal lounge to enjoy chatting with neighbours or socialising with family and friends. There are 48 one and two-bedroom apartments to rent with many amenities and facilities nearby.

Toby Drage, who will be 86 in a few weeks’ time, was the first tenant to move into Pears Court at Sandringham this week. Toby was a weekend receptionist at Jewish Care’s former care home on the Sandringham site, the Princess Alexandra Home, for ten years. Sadly, Toby’s husband passed away two and a half years ago. Toby said, “I wanted to live independently, and I wanted a Jewish environment, so I knew I wanted a Jewish Care Retirement Living flat. By living here, I'm also alleviating worry for my children. My children love close by, and my grandchildren are spread out. Everyone here is so kind and helpful, the move has definitely been the right one for me and it’s gone well.”

Len and Sylvia Kingsley also moved into Pears Court at Sandringham this week. Len and Sylvia have been married for 67 years and have been looking forward to moving in since the Retirement Living apartments were announced. Sylvia is very pleased that they will now be able to have some help and support with Len’s care as he approaches his 95th birthday next month.

Pears Court at Sandringham is an exciting addition to the local community, and we look forward to sharing more news as more tenants move in and the community there grows.
